Desmond Bryant slapped with lawsuit stemming from criminal mischief arrest

desmond-bryant-mugshot-raidersSo, we all know that Desmond Bryant became an Internet sensation after his horrendous/amazing mugshot from his arrest last month went viral.

Now the Raiders-turned-Browns defensive linemanĀ is being sued by the South Florida family at the center of his misdemeanor criminal mischief arrest.

Bryant allegedly showed up piss-ass drunk and shirtless (but we take it you already gathered that much from the mugshot) at 5:30 in the morning causing a ruckus at the family’s home, banging on their front door. The hulking, 6-foot-6, 300-plus-pound Bryant even ripped off the door handle.

The family of five, including three small children between ages four and 10, reportedly believed at the time Bryant was trying to break into their home to rob them. If that were the case, Bryant has to officially be the worst home invader ever for breaking that one fundamental rule of burglary: Do not belligerently knock on the door in the middle of the night and expect somebody on the inside to let you right in. Maybe good thing this all didn’t take place Oscar Pistorius’ house.

Anyway, here’s more from the AP:

The Bakars’ attorney, Robert Fiore, said in an email Tuesday that Bryant “made more than a simple, inconsequential mistake” and that the lawsuit was filed “to hold Mr. Bryant legally accountable for his inexcusable conduct and the resulting trauma to my clients.”

At one point, the lawsuit says, the shirtless Bryant tried to yank open the door while the 5-foot-10, 170-pound Isaac Bakar struggled to stop him from the inside and yelled things like, “go away” and “leave my family alone.”
